I have really enjoyed this game as a refreshing break from World of Tanks. I really want this game to succeed but each patch seems to be cresting a hill to see another climb ahead. I've been hoping that other people would enjoy this game and come and play. I've just lost a game 6 points from the end because I was squall lined and gave the enemy superiority. I had 15k+ points but squall line and bots decide otherwise.

 

I've been thrashing this game of late which has got something to do with it. I enjoy grinding to a degree but the latest patch has really annoyed me and killed my appetite to play the game. There is so much broken with this game and I have tried to give productive feedback. In particular asking for bugs and crashes to be fixed. How long has that taken?

 

I saw SLAY's recent video defending the latest patch and he made some good points but the grind now has become too much to keep me interested. It's win or nothing. The shameful grab for more money by WG appalls me.

 

The way to earn money in free to play games is firstly make the game great fun to play and secondly allow players to by individuality.

 

The player base has been crying out for changes in the game. The obvious priority for me was, fix the bugs, improve the game performance drastically, more content, more maps and balancing. Instead we have got a patch that has been very poorly received and Iron Maiden crap. Dear God!

 

There are none so deaf as those who do not listen.

 

I thought that the new CM would be a positive step. It seems to be at present a WG firewall. Defending every aspect of the game is not helpful. Transparency and mediation is what was needed. An honest and open road map of the future would help the developers and players.

 

I feel very let down, I've spent a considerable amount on premiums and the developers are willingly running this game aground. It has so much potential and yet I have lost faith in the direction it is going.

 

This patch exaggerates the divide between old and new players. I have noticed players that I saw regularly a month ago are missing.

 

An incoherent rant but I felt that I needed to get it off my chest. I may well be back tomorrow we will see.

 

WG greed and incompetence are a bad business model.

I don't like you? News to me. Toxic chat in game is banter as far as I am concerned.

Well how embarrassing. Next day and I find myself playing my A26B with Britinmadrid. All that I said above stands. I do like this game but am so frustrated. The truth is I cannot find anything else to play at the moment. If WG see sense and make WoT +1/-1 MM I will go back to that.

 

I really like the look of Post Scriptum but it is still in it's infancy.

 

As a side note I think if WG removed the WR from the profile and rewarded performance rather than outright wins this may induce people to play the planes they enjoy more rather than the OP plays and low tier stat padders.

As much as I see the point, many people will find another metric to "be the best at." I don't remember the last time I was worried about my profile or what was in it. I think it would be when I was applying for a clan for tournaments, right now, play to have fun, get to know the game. The rest will come with time. 

 

Nice to see you back though, now i need to bomb you mid air to teach you never to leave :izmena:

I'm enjoying grinding up my premiums now they are fixed today. There was a ton of server lag yesterday which was killing the game experience.

 

I am not that worried about my WR, I just want to win every game especially as currently you get next to nothing for a loss. Too often my self and Britinmadrid lose because we died after squall line or bots inexplicably are worse than the other team.

 

Please reward effort not just results and I will be happier.

Flight is the most reliable way to win. Plus it is more fun. A 3 man flight would be overpowered for sure.

yes, some scraps should be gained even if its a loss. that would only be fair imo.
Take it to the limit.
One more time.

I wrote the same thing in German forum part yesterday. A mix of personal points and aircraft type efficiency (ATE) would be good I think. So get categories like:

1-10k points: get x materials

10k-20k:...

...etc.

calculated like: warpoints * ATE

Good base would be average warpoints of all players make mid of reward-stages

I have put in my feedback about the materials and desire for people to earn based on performance in a loss etc. 

 

I can't do any more than that, other than linking to individual ideas etc.

Just need to add my voice asking for some better rewards in a loss.

Right now it feels there are too many things in this game which depend on the win:

- Daily missions

- Materials

- Elite-->Specialist mission grind

- Many achievements

 

I get that there needs to be an incentive to play the objectives.  But currently you lose on too many things if you lose, and it's aggravating. SOME more rewards on a great performance on a lose would soften that blow. Like a small amount of materials -- but small enough that you'll still try your best to win.

agreed on increased loss rewards.

adjust up the cred/xp reward on loss and remove the win conditions on all specialist grinds.

 play to have fun,

 

That's exactly what I was doing up to 2.0.5.5 ; but some things have changed and took the fun (for me).

For example I took the equipment mission for reinforced airframe and have to that with the IL-2 mod, only tier V GA that I have on my new account (gave up on existing account). Was OK until the second to last mission, where you have to get 400 personal xp for damage to ground targets in 2 consecutive mission and now I just lose every 2nd mission no matter how good I personally score. Probably will never get it, because it only runs another 23 days (why?) and I'll be going on a holiday soon ...

I wondered about this mission, i went with a fighter mission, does that mean im not able to complete it with any other type?

I guess it depends on what kind of equipment you choose in that mission ; I chose the reinforced airframe or whatever it's called now so I have to use a plane that can you can equip it with ... ?

Good for you ..now more to the point.....

 

 

Returned to this game yesterday after leaving shortly after it was re released (..how long ago was that now..?) hoping to see some improvements....but no...This game is still running like a dead donkey in its performance and as I discovered when getting into the action im dropping down to 15- 20 fps and NOTHING has changed. Jesus Guys you really have your priority's screwed on this one. Still making adjustments in your patches for things people don't realy want or need ahead of actually making it run properly so more people can play, more people = more money WG but guess you don't need it....

So Came back ...now going...

I wish you all well though...happy sky trails.


 

Wolf.

Errrr I'm sorry eekeeboo what I meant was back to the point of the thread...taking a break as the op has explained?

He has explained why he's taking a break...Ive explained why I took a break from this game, so when you say:

 I don't think you understand....It doesn't matter how many things you change in game how nice it looks, all the new options available to customers etc...all that means nothing when the game runs at 15 fps and your unable to play it properly??

Can you understand my frustration as a customer...I want to play your game but cant because you prioritise in game options and additions AHEAD of making the game run smoothly? 

Are there any plans to optimise this game as you have done in your other titles eg wot and wows because they run at 50-60 fps for me. This is the Only one that's unplayable.

Thank you.

ps. this text editing system on WOP doesn't work properly and is completely different to the other forums on your other titles (wot +wows) wich is also super frustrating when trying to write on this forum .
